It's a great tour, even for Chicago area residents. You walk about .5 mile in two hours. Amanda, our guide and the tour originator, is a wealth of information of the history and architecture. We began in the Chase Building with a description of modernism in architecture. She parallels this with the small building (Italian Village) across the street.
They use four I-pads to demonstrate the history and other aspects using photos and videos. You learn so much about the history! The First Methodist church is fantastic. You hear about the history of the Picasso.
There are a few places to rest along the way.
The pedpath through and under buildings is very cool. Few of us knew it was all there.
The tour ends at the Cultural Center--which is amazingly beautiful inside.
I highly recommend this tour for visitors and residents alike.
They also have a jazz/blues bus tour and this spring will start a tour of historic bars.
